Fixed the bottom rail angle is seen on rare boards that have a super concave at the bottom stringer. Very rare issue that is almost never seen because it's specific to a rare type of design.
Fixed the bottom rail start issue with boards with lots of concave, especially near the stringer.
This release fixes an issue where the bay would freeze with certain boards, and also includes a number of general fixes. See the changelog for the full list.
We've been seeing a lot of busted boards recently -- if you've been having issues with the bay please see the page below for general design advice and things to watch for:
Fixes width scaling issue introduced in 2.2.0 and a major freezing issue. See 2.2.0 for a full description of recent changes.
The following issues have been found and are being fixed in the next release:
The latest release of Aku Shaper includes support for reading .s3dx files, a new rail editing feature, and a number of little fixes. Lots to enjoy in this one. See the changelog for more details and links to video overviews.
Big props out to Thomas at Shape3d and Francisco Flores for all their help on this one.
Couple small bug fixes and a new slice template feature to help when adding new slices. We're hoping to add proper slice interpolation soon but this should help in the meantime. When you're happy with the new slice just save and reload to get rid of the slice templates.
The first round of license expirations are hitting and confusing a lot of customers. This release handles "stale" licenses more gracefully and prompts for license to be refreshed.
If you're wondering why the license needs to be refreshed here's the deal:
All licenses are only good for one month (max) at a time. They need to be refreshed each month to pick up the extended expiration (assuming subscription is in good standing) and any new features we've added. If you're on a free trial, you'll automatically pick up the next month.
Fixes issue for Mac users when opening files from Finder.
BRX files now use a red bird for the file icon. Makes it way easier to identify brx from brd. OS X caches these things so you'll need to restart your computer to pick up the changes.
Looking into how we can do the same for you. Not so simple with the way the exe is built.
You owe Chilli a beer for this one!
Toolpath previews are good to go for Heavyweights and Factories. This release also includes minor usability fixes for Mac users.
Heavyweights and Factories:
Only affects windows users. Addresses security issues that made it hard to run the software in Windows 7 and 8.
A number of recent Java updates have done their best to destroy this release. We put a lot of time into Aku Shaper 2.0 addressing the issues and adding a number of improvements.
We'll try to keep this version running as long as possible but we are no longer actively supporting it. If you're running into problems, try downgrading to Java 6.
Please subscribe to the new version instead to make sure you always have access to the latest improvements.
